Delta Blues: The Life and Times of the Mississippi Masters Who Revolutionized American Music
As a way of saying thank you to all readers of TheBluesBlogger, and at the same time have a little fun, I’m giving away one copy of the book Delta Blues by Ted Gioia. This is the hard cover edition of the book that takes a historical journey through time and examines the mood and atmosphere that is the basis for most popular music we know and love today. Gioia provides insight into the early life and career of Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Howlin’ Wolf and B.B. King. From the novice lover of the blues to the most knowledgeable music fan, this is a book I’m sure you’ll find intriguing.

This blog started as a therapeutic means for me to deal with the aftershock of my heart attack 2 years ago this month. TheBluesBlogger was a comfortable vehicle for me to share my personal experiences and merge them together with my love of music and writing… Since then it has grown beyond my wildest expectations. Over the past 2 years, I’ve received some extremely positive and heart felt messages in which I’m eternally grateful. To all readers of this blog old and new, thanks for letting me share my thoughts along with the music and the times I so fondly remember. And of course the new sounds that continue to inspire and motivate me. Your comments, input and words of encouragement mean more to me than I can ever say…
All The Best,
